Workplace Health and Safety (Level 3) - Target Audience

In the workplace, there are many reasons why good health and safety practices must be implemented and maintained. These include legal reasons, such as complying with the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, moral reasons, including protecting your workforce from unnecessary injury, and financial reasons, such as reducing preventable costs to your business. To ensure that these practices are maintained, it is essential that your workforce receives appropriate training that is suitable for their role in order to allow them to work more confidently and safely.

Our Workplace Health and Safety Level 3 course is an online health and safety course that is suitable for line managers, supervisors and anyone who is responsible for managing others in the workplace. The information and techniques that you will learn will help you to more effectively manage your workforce, improve safety awareness in your organisation and enhance your reputation.

Commodious’ online course has been written to match the IOSH Managing Safely syllabus, but this version has NOT been assessed or approved by IOSH. Our IOSH-approved Managing Safely course is available here.

This interactive online course is suitable for anyone, regardless of sector, and its flexible delivery will minimise business disruption.

This course certificate has no expiry date because there is no formally recognised period of validity for any health and safety training or this type of course. The HSE recommends refresher training is carried out whenever it is felt necessary. Safety registration bodies such as CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine & SMAS and other members of the SSiP scheme recommend most re-training is done every 3 years. We would recommend refreshing knowledge as and when legislation or guidance changes applicable to these regulations.

Quality Management Systems Ltd (QMS) made this prestigious award to Commodious in January 2018.
